Well, what can I say. 2015 seems to be flying by..........can't believe we're already half way through the year! So much has happened since the park closed at the end of last season it's hard to decide where to start!
So I'll start at the beginning.
As soon as we said goodbye to the last customers of 2014 it was straight to work (no rest for the wicked as they say) on getting the park ready for this year.
However, the winter just gone was one like no other. The office was moved into a portacabin between the old office and laundrette as it was time to start its renovations! Yes, our little office was getting a makeover! The building work began pretty much straight away with all the inside walls being knocked down and rebuilt, transforming our reception into a lovely open plan area.
Whilst this was going on, tucked away in the little portacabin, us girls were taking all of your bookings and enquiries for this year. How we coped in that little portacabin for three months I will never know, but somehow we managed (even if we did annoy each other from time to time!)
Whilst the renovations in the office were taking place we also had some new hard standing motorhome pitches put in, which if you have stayed with us this year you will have seen just past the entrance on the right hand side, just before the new reception.
As well as the new hard standing pitches, we also had a drive over motorhome point put in, so all you motorhomes could fill up with water and empty your waste water before you check in.
Before we knew it March was upon us and it was time to reopen the Park! Where had the last four months gone? we were now moved in to the new office and still settling in when our first customers arrived. From there its been non stop. The phones are ringing with everyone wanting to get booked in early so they can get their favourite pitch.
Alex our new entertainer has been working hard over in the club entertaining you all. He's done some magic which I know both kids and adults have enjoyed, as well as some games shows and other exciting games. We've had some bigger and better acts on this year, with plenty more still to come!
We've also had a new entertainment system put in place in the club which has helped Alex out with some of his game shows like lucky keys and open the box; as well as having a wide variety of music ranging from country and western through to modern music, plus Irish music and 60's.
As well as having a new entertainer and new entertainment system, we have also had a cinema with surround sound installed into the club. This was up and running by Spring Bank Holiday, where we showed a variety of films for adults and kids. We've had Paddington Bear, Frozen, Ghostbusters to name but a few, with plenty more lined up for the six weeks summer holidays! So make sure you keep checking the boards outside the Clubhouse to see what films are on and when!
The office is getting busier and busier with bookings as more and more of you are wanting to holiday in Britain. For the last few weekends we have been fully booked with not a pitch or caravan to spare, so it's a good thing that the weather has been great! We have also started taking bookings for next year now so if you're one of these that like to get booked in early, pop in to the office whilst your here and book your 2016 pitch with us. At least then you can choose your pitch and get the one you like!
Right, that's about it for now, must get back to answering these calls and emails..............................
